Merry Snowman #2

Snowman 2Yesterday I mentioned that I would show another version of my snowman card.  Instead of cutting him out, I stamped him directly onto my cardstock.  Which one do you like better?

Who doesn’t love a snowman??  This cute little guy is from the set Snow Day in the Holiday Catalog.  I stamped his body using Smoky Slate.  I inked the stamp up, stamped it on my grid paper and then stamped it on my Whisper White paper.  I did this because I felt that the color was just a bit too dark going immediately onto the paper.  An extra added bonus was that I could practice placing his eyes, mouth, etc. on my grid paper first!  I also used the Expressions Thinlits Die to make the word Merry (yesterday I used the set for the word Thankful).  I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock and paper from the Season of Style DSP Paper Stack.  I cut my snowman out and used dimensionals to mount him on a piece of Whisper White that I ran through my Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  Another option, if you don’t want to cut the snowman out, is to stamp him directly onto a piece of paper that has not been embossed.  I will post one tomorrow so you can see the difference.

I hope this inspires you to get into your stamping space today and make something!

ThankfulHappy Friday!  Yesterday I mentioned that I was heading to the DMV to renew my license.  One piece of advice:  make an appointment online!  Oh my gosh, I was in and out in ten minutes!  It was very painless.  Now I just hope my picture turns out!!

Today’s card uses a very fun product from the Holiday catalog called Expressions Thinlits dies. These are used with your Big Shot and are very easy to use.  I found that using waxed paper made the words just pop out of the die.  The sandwich I used was:  cutting plate, cardstock, waxed paper, thinlit, cutting plate.  I used dots of glue with the 2 way glue pen to adhere the word to my card.  I also used the 1 1/4″ Burlap ribbon.  I don’t know why I waited so long to use this product!Expressions Thinlits

Have a wonderful rest of the day!
